    Thanks again for this addon! Really completes the look as a gaming and media appliance.
  1. @CoinTos Many, many thanks for this addon. I spent some time this morning, trying to optimize how it locates AutoHotkey.exe, and got some good results to try and reduce the delay in starting up BigBox. I am a super duper novice in Python, mind you, so plenty of people will/should come along and say how wrong I am. Anyway: In findApp() - main.py, line 232..you may want to put some constraints on the os.walk(), or potentially accept an exclude list of directories and/or filetypes as input to this function. As it stands I am excluding: a list of Launchbox subdirectories that very likely do not contain what we want constraining to the extension '.exe', as I understand this only works on Windows so should be safe Results I saw: without any constraints: 14.0886399746 seconds with the ignore_dirs list and .exe constraint: 0.131103992462 seconds If you have the addon in Github/etc I'm happy to submit a PR, otherwise I hope this helps. def findApp(program): result = '' ignore_dirs = set(['Backups','Games','Images','LBThemes','Logs','Manuals','Metadata','Music','PauseThemes','Sounds','StartupThemes','Themes','Videos']) for root, dirs, files in os.walk(launchbox): dirs[:] = [d for d in dirs if d not in ignore_dirs] files[:] = [f for f in files if f.endswith('.exe')] if program in files: result = os.path.join(root, program) return result
  2. Sorry to add a +1 - I am on Kodi 18.6 and am also seeing the delay in starting Big Box - in my case it's about 15-20 seconds. Before I upgraded to 1.5.7 everything was instant (until of course AHK's location changed). I initially upgraded from 1.5.4, but to be on the safe side after seeing this problem, I blew away all of the addon files and addon_data, then reinstalled from scratch (including kodi-six, just to be double sure).. Nothing super interesting in the kodi.log or LaunchBoxLauncher.log files. Doesn't seem to matter if I ask the script to quit Kodi or not. Happy to grab more debug info if it is needed. **EDIT: figured it out. locateAutoHokey() is slow because there's an os.walk() going on to figure out where AutoHotKey.exe is. That's a ton of files in my case (with an entire Games\ directory that is actually a link to a network share..) I assume you did that because, well, the location of the AHK binary might change again. It makes sense. Anyway - I don't have a better solution right this minute, but I hardcoded the location of the binary and BigBox launch was instant.
